WWW Wednesday: 28th November 2018

The WWW Wednesday meme is currently hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and is a great way to do a weekly update on what you’ve been reading and what you have planned.

WWW Wednesday

To take part all you have to do is answer the following three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently Reading

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

I always seem to be starting new books on a Monday and this week is no exception as I finally picked up The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. It’s not a book I immediately thought I’d want to read but I’ve heard so many fantastic things about it from pretty much everyone I had to read it. I’m not that far through but so far so good. The story is intriguing and I am loving the writing which is a good thing as I also have an ARC of Daisy Jones and the Six on my reading soon list.

So I lost my hold on  The Diviners by Libba Bray and had to return it with 9 hours remaining so not really listening to anything at the moment. I should probably get back into Clockwork Princess but I’m getting a little grumpy with all of the stopping and starting on audios. I might just take a break for a bit.


Recently Finished

Girls of Paper and Fire

I’m still reading at a reduced pace at the moment so only two books finished this week the first of which was Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan. I was lucky enough to get a copy of this from NetGalley but had been wary to read as I’ve been a little down on YA fantasy and there was a lot of hype around this one (something that always puts me off). I did however dive in and initially I really loved it. There are some wonderful descriptions, great world building and a romance that was different from what I expected. However around the middle I found my attention starting to wander and I felt the ending was a little bit of a let down.

The Truth Pixie

The second book finished this week was The Truth Pixie by Matt Haig. I’m not sure I can necessarily count it as it’s very much a children’s book and I read the whole thing in about 20 mins but I absolutely loved it. I do love Matt Haig’s writing and how he can turn his hand to just about any kind of book but this is one is really special and made me so happy.


Reading Next

My library reservation for Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet, the fourth book in the Charley Davidson series, came in so I can pretty much guarantee I’ll be picking it up next. I am completely addicted to this series, in much the same way I was with the Sookie Stackhouse books. I also want to read The Christmas Sisters by Sarah Morgan, it’s something of a miracle I haven’t read it yet as I usually can’t resist a Morgan Christmas story.

Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet (Charley Davidson, #4)The Christmas Sisters: The perfect feel-good and romantic read to curl up with this winter!

Have you read any of the books on my list this week? Any others you’d recommend? As always please feel free to leave comments and links below.

Happy Reading ❤

  1. I think you’ll like Christmas Sisters. I have been in a funk where everything gets on my nerves. 😀
    I do hope you love Evelyn. Such a wonderful book. And Daisy is my favorite book of the year!

    • I know. I did wonder if they’d made it the 7 1/2 deaths in the US for that very reason.

      They’re not very alike at all. One is a murder mystery with a twist and the other the story of someone’s life and relationships. Both are brilliant but I suspect 7 Deaths would be more your type of read.

      • Seeing as I bought 7 Deaths last month I’d say your intuition is spot on 🙂

        And now that you mention it I recall seeing it 7 1/2 Deaths on Goodreads and the author assuring that the American version didn’t actually have any more number of deaths.

    • It’s my own fault for not taking the time to listen to them but it is getting frustrating. I may just read them instead as I have both on my kindle.

      Seven Husband’s has been great. I was up way too late reading it last night. It’s a just one more chapter type book.
